along the party line on cap and trade and obama care and higher taxes and cutting medicare. they are going to say no to does things. i think when the politicking time comes they are going to say i don't think i want to invite barack obama to come into my district, he does not make things happen. >> sean: amazing turn around one year ago think of where we were in the country. there's been talk about how this impacts health care. nancy pelosi said earlier today that health care will go for. other congressmen says it does not. then there's talk about she nan agains that they won't seat brown right away if he has the victory tonight if they play any shenanigans what does that do to the mood of the electorate, which is clearly pretty angry and pretty anti-the democrats' agenda? >> i would be surprised, the democrats have been talking what they would do if scott brown became elected how they would get their health care through despite the will of the people. if they play the kind of she nan -- shenanigans you described it will show the arrogance which has lead to brown's victory
and res regulation out there. >> humana is up nicely and they have a big medicare advantage program. look at other side of this. the hospital stocks have been under pressure here today like universal health or tenet health care. why has that -- why would they be under pressure at this point? because with no health care reform, less people might be insured so that expense wouldn't be alalleviated. that would be an issue for them as well. each if the republicans win, a number of people noted the house could pass the senate bill that was already passed and simply move on to president obama for his signature. that would be politically con ro veshl. japan airlines declaring bankruptcy. what? the japanese bailed them out four times in ten years and this time they just cut them loose and decided to let them go. that sent shock waves through the industry. amr and delta, by the way, are vying for a close relationship with japan airlines. amr already has one. the important thing is we're looking for some signs that maybe they could get a deeper relationship in the future here. we'll get amr and con
senator ben nelson? apparently he is asking for money for his state that would be used for medicare and he's asking not to take it anymore? guest: this was done essentially to get senator nelson's vote. it was to expand federal funding for medicare in nebraska. some said great, but what about our state? senator nelson took a lot of heat for this. he's a conservative leaning democrat in a strongly republican state. he's gone around the state and done all kinds of ads to explain his position, and finally he said to senator reed, let's take this off the table. he said let's give it to all states or take it out entirely. host: wlats going on in massachusetts -- with what's going on in massachusetts, how long until he could be sworn into the senate? guest: this is a matter of contention. you haveçó democratic-leaning officials in massachusetts saying it may take two weeks to officially process the win. thers÷ tradition in the senate it is not disputed, you get that person in there as quickly as possible. i can bet republicans would be crying foul if democrats tried to string this out and lea

or not the government should take over 1/of our economy, slash medicare by half a trillion dollars, raise taxes by half a trillion dollars and drive insurance rates up for the most of the rest of our country and i think we heard a large and resounding message yesterday if one of the most, if not arguably the most liberal states in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a imin of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate. senator jim webb, made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who were principally responsible for certifying election after earlier saying take up to two weeks, indicated it could be as soon today. i don't believe the kind of thing we've seen on full diswith the corn husbander kick back, the louis purchase, the gator aide, drafting the bill behind closed doors,

lieberman and senator nelson. the other thing is to start over again and add medicare, add 55-year-olds up to medicare, which is what the senate was thinking about doing in the first place. there's a big advantage if you do that. you don't get universal insurance and insurance reform, but the senate bill has very little reform in it anyway. you get per insured rate away who can't get it because they're over 55. i think that kind of approach is the kind of approach i would use. get it done, have it easy to understand. the expansion of medicare is easy to understand. we can run it through reconciliation pretty quickly. you don't have a choice. if you're going to get anything done in the senate from this point on, it's going to be through reconciliation. >> governor dean, thank you very much. we have to take a quick break right now, and we'll be checking in with scott brown's headquarters. hevy tahoe, south on i-75, near exit 5. we're on it. onstar, we may have that tahoe. ok, i'll flash the lights. we got it. it's in the clear. i'm sending a signal to cut the power. we got him. mr. ross, the

[ laughter ] but i think that the president understands now how serious this problem is. and it requires hatchets and scalpel scalpels. >> reporter: the white house briefed democrats last night on the spending freeze proposal and didn't offer a lot of details. until they do, majority leader harry reid and nancy pelosi, are non-committal. >> glenn: major, thank you. home prices rose for the sixth straight month in november. standard & poor's case-shiller index reports the biggest gains were in phoenix and san francisco. the biggest declines were in new york and chicago. consumer confidence is up by

from, you know, the senate version where ben nelson took $100 million medicare and medicaid payoff and decided to sign on the dotted line. how does it get there the house now? >> well, i hope that bart stupak remains stalworth. the problem with so many moderate democrats we have seen them fold every time. ben nelson did. now he has a huge backlash from his constituents. not just on the bribery part, but also on the abortion funding part of it as well. he's retreating. he's saying now he's saying oh, i think everybody should get the same deal i did. how are they going to pay for that on top of that? how is it going to get through? well, of course, the democrats who are in full freak-out mode are gaming this all out. it's possible that the senate might try to force the house to swallow what they put through. so they could expedite it on the timeline. but i think another thing that people have to worry about here is what is going on, on the ground, in massachusetts over this weekend? we talked about the unions, the service employees international union. they will be putting at least 3
, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen medicare for seniors and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. >> the republican response was that the newly elected governor of virginia, bob mcdonald who said the government simply tried to do too much. he says americans want affordable health care but don't want uncle sam running it. he voiced concern about overall spending in washington. >> the amount of debt is on pace to double in five years and triple in 10. the federal debt is now over $100,000 per household. this is simply unsustainable. the president's partial phrase announced tonight on discretionary spending is a small one. the circumstances of our time demand that we reconsider and restore the proper limited role of government at every level. >> on social issues, the president said he would work with the military to end don't ask don't tell for gays this year. the republican senator john corning calls that "social engineering." back to you guys in new york. >> as you look at that shot right now -- >> of molly? >> as you look at the shot of the president of the
of medicare and capped out of pocket expenses. there is a range of things that will become law. when the president signs this bill, not in four years, but immediately. if we don't pass it, it will live as a negative caricature in people's minds. terrible mistake. >> here's my advice. it's worth what i give you. it's free and maybe it's worth that. it seems to me this administration is perceived to be activists when it comes to government. progressive, if you will. it believes in positive government. the only question will be the same in november. the voters know about your administration. do you believe about getting things done for the country? the only question is open to the voters. not whether you are progressive or not, but whether you are successful or not. you might as well go for it. you might as well. great to have you on. >> thank you. >> thank you for coming on "hardball." does scott brown's victory mean health care reform is dead or can the democrats keep it alive? let's talk about it with the go former governor of vermont, howard dean that started this years ago. you are
this more complicated than it needs to be. we've abandoned some of the principles like expanding medicare. a lot of voters don't like the direction we're going on health care. but if we don't have 60 votes -- i keep hearing the senators say without 60, they can't pass anything. well, it looks like they may not have 60. >> do you know what the speaker's talking about when she says it will happen one way or the other? >> they're talking about the negotiations at the white house, it seems to have a flavor of whistling past the graveyard. i don't think negotiating around the 60 vote senate majority makes a lot of sense, late tonight -- i hope that martha coakley wins, but if we don't, it dramatically changes the environment. look, the republicans have said that if they get this 41st vote, they're going to use it to kill health care. i think we should take them at their word. >> what do you do? do progressive members agree to pass the senate bill? or do they hope to finetune something and use reconciliation? do you punt? what do you do? >> i think we need to take a step back and get the messag
a sweetheart deal to let people out of medicare advantage there. is a sweetheart deal for a number of counties in florida. 13 different senators said we want something special for us. and said if you didn't get it you're not doing a good job. >> did any republican senator get a special deal in this bill? >> not that i saw. i think the bill is terrible and republicans uniformly saw that. which is why all 40 of us voted against it. it raises taxes and going to cause families in america to have their premium goes up. >> do you believe that senator ben nelson when he accepted his $300 million deal, do you believe that he, at the time was thinking every state should and would get that? >> no. >> that is -- what is that? what is that? >> winston churchhill would have called it. >> this is like, he's come up with this now. >> well, you laugh. >> he had to come up with something that. inteft he can come up with. he said he's going to withhold the vote on the principle of where he stood on federal funding and abortion. then, all of a sudden gives into language that is not the language people wanted and
